Polluted water and the lack of elentary sanitation unermine the efforts to combart extrem poverty and diseases in the village, particularly in Busia regions. In some other villages, women and children march up to 5 km per day to a standing body of water. The Water is cloudy and unsuitable for consumption. Nevertheless, the full canisters are crried home despite heat and dirt. Out of emergency, many are forced to drink dirty water and therefore harmful to their health. The result are diseases like Typhoid, Cholera, Diarrhea, gastrointestinal infection and others. It’s therefore one of our great challenges for us to provide children and people in need with hygiienically clean drinking water.
With your help the kenya-ChildVision e.V. would like to ensure the drinking water supply through boreholes in order to counter the above mentioned diseases.
